Tv Season Info

The presidential ambitions of US vice president Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) have never really gone away, it's just that the wannabe head of state can't stop putting her foot in her mouth or shooting it. Unfortunately, old habits die hard in Season 3 as Selina decides to throw her hat in the ring again, an announcement that renews the rivalry between Amy (Anna Chlumsky) and Dan (Reid Scott) to manage her campaign. Meanwhile, Mike (Matt Walsh) mixes business with pleasure; Gary (Tony Hale) suffers a physical setback that could threaten his job; and Jonah (Timothy Simons) tries to make a name for himself in the media. Later, as the race to primary season heats up, Selina relies on strategic advice from Ben (Kevin Dunn) and Kent (Gary Cole) to stay one step ahead of her opponents, including war hero Danny Chung (Randall Park) and former defense secretary George Maddox (Isiah Whitlock Jr). With Sufe Bradshaw, Sarah Sutherland, Kathy Najimy, Christopher Meloni and Diedrich Bader.

If you thought HBO's lean, mean political comedy moved quickly in its first two seasons, get ready for the ride of your life in Season 3.

The show works because all of its actors seem so human, so likeable, despite the words coming from their mouths.

It was a brilliant narrative move to shake up Meyer and her crack staff with the promise of the Presidency as it allows each of these self-centered nuts a chance to crank up their intensity now that a life-changing run is in their faces.

Veep may seem to have started almost as a one-joke premise, it has developed beyond that. Inside all its satirical humor, there is the dark commentary about our dysfunctional government.

If Veep is as successful with the pay-off as it's been with the lead-up, we're in for a quite a treat over the next nine weeks.
